in with the debate preps and vice-president joe biden on the campaign trail as well and saying in his response that president obama was dealing with the economy in way and once again blamed president bush for the faulty economy that he was handed. >> alisyn: there you go. paul ryan still out on the campaign trail, he talks about his view of if president obama wins a second term and i think he used the word shudder, it would make him shudder. >> i shudder as a gun owner, seeing his record when he was in the united states senate, what would he do if he never has to face the voters ever again? the next president will appoint a lot of different judges and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our 2nd amendment rights you need a president who respects those rights as well. >> dave: in the president's defense he has not touched gun legislation in any way, shape or form, but of course the fear is, from paul ryan and folks, if you give him four terms-- another term, four years, unchecked without having to face this, maybe he'll touch gun legislation. there's bee
